Finding that one thing. - City Slicker
I'm a very driven person. I set goals and I accomplish them. I live in the extremes : when I work I work HARD, when I party I party HARD. When I set my mind on something there's very little that will distract me from it. I strive the most when I'm in stressful or complex situations, I love pushing myself and getting out of my comfort zone otherwise I feel lazy when things are too easy. Lastly I love meeting new people, I put myself in situations where I am bound to make new encounters but as much as I can be a social animal I don't mind spending long time alone with my thoughts reflecting on how life is amazing when you open yourself to it.
Simply consider the past, live in the present and strive to build a better future for those who will come after you.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am at my very beginning but I am planning a trip to australia and new zealand next year (2013) and I plan to experience the CS phenomena for the first time there.
Put simply I had two great passions in life. My first one is evidently Travel and my second one is Fitness. When I am not on the road discovering new cultures, new people and new adventures, I am training for fitness competitions (ie bodybuilding) or training others to reach their own fitness goals. Health, active lifestyle and proper nutrition is something I could talk about for hours on end. I also love getting involved in social events or volunteer for organisation. I have been volunteering for 3 years now at a local organisation called Ottawa Fashion Week which gather to local and international designers (another great place to meet people from different backgrounds).
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
From all the places I have visited so far Portugal is by far the one that have stick to my heart the most. With its passionate, friendly and helpful people, even the shortest of visit there will make you want to call your friends and family to send them your new Home address. From their paste of live to their love towards each other not to mention the amazing Porto (the wine and the town), they really do have it all.
